The DO of the Konye Subdivision, Meme Division in the Southwest Region of Cameroon, has urged the population to do everything possible to chase separatists out of their community, even if it means using witchcraft.
Attah Moses Ndep is reported to have made the call on Thursday, April 28, during a meeting that brought together sons and daughters of Ikiliwindi, a locality in the Konye Subdivision.
As The Guardian Post Newspaper indicates, the meeting was meant for brainstorming on ways to completely send separatists out of the Ikiliwindi community, and have a return to peace after five years of instability in Cameroon’s two English-speaking regions.
The Konye DO said he had made several attempts to dialogue with his subjects but did not succeed to get favourable results, the Yaounde-based English newspaper reports.
The Ikiwilindi community is currently without a ruler, following the abduction of Chief Ebele Collins Akale. His whereabouts remain unknown to date.
In order to ensure a gradual return to normalcy, the Konye Divisional Officer Attah Moses Ndep, has given the population three weeks to designate a caretaker chief, as well as create a vigilante group to tighten security.
